The Mediating Role of Sensory Processing and Attentional Control in the
Relationship Between Misophonia and Severity of Disability, Emotional
Traits, and Disgust Propensity in Iranian College Students
Background: The current study investigates how sensory
processing and attention management mediate the associations between
misophonia and the degree of disability, emotional characteristics, and
disgust propensity. Methods: The structural equation modeling
approach was applied on the data gathered from 495 students from public
colleges through convenience sampling in order to carry out this study.
Results: The findings demonstrated that misophonia
significantly affects both attention control and sensory processing. It
was also discovered that attention control has a mediating role in the
relationships between misophonia and disgust propensity as well as in
the relationship between misophonia, depression, and anxiety.
